The next item of business is consideration of business motion S1M-2707, in the name of Patricia Ferguson, on behalf of the Parliamentary Bureau, setting out a business programme.

I draw members' attention to a printing error in the business motion that is printed in today's business bulletin. Paragraph (c) should read

"that Stage 1 of the Land Reform (Scotland) Bill be completed by Friday 22 March 2002."

That was a manuscript amendment.

Any member who wishes to speak against the motion should press their request-to-speak button now.

Motion moved,

That the Parliament agrees the following programme of business-
